    Advanced Topic What really goes into skeleton building in stony corals?

    Introduction The process of calcification or biomineralization in SPS corals is often a head scratcher for most people, let alone reefing hobbyists. I've always wondered myself what really goes on behind the scene. Through research, I reviewed some research papers in order to help us better...

    Adequate flow

    Hi guys, after I read some threads it's still unclear whether I have enough flow for my acros or not. The problem is: I see no polyps extension at all, all of them are hidden (except one acro). I bought all the frags 5 days ago. Could such behaviour be related to reduced flow in my tank...
